In SPC-4r20a, Key Exchange payload
In the fifth paragraph <<The KEY EXCHANGE DATA field contains the sender?s 
Diffie-Hellman public value for this key exchange. The format of
key exchange data is as specified in the reference cited in that registry 
for the value used.>> it references a "registry".  To what registry is 
this referring?
I'm trying to figure out exactly what data gets passed between host and 
drive during this Diffie-Hellman step.	RFC 4306 pre-pends 8 bytes of 
header-type information, but don't know if that applies to the IKEv2-SCSI 
implementation as well (at least in this field).
